Chris Nelson
Pagosa Springs, CO. USA

I am a professional goldsmith. I began my career in metals at age
52, in 2000. Up until 2008, I took many master’s level workshops
from some of the best metal smiths teaching jewelry art, and built a
collection of work, mostly in gold. I have shown my work in Juried
Art Festivals and galleries s ince 2008.

In 2009, I began working with iron and gold. I have developed
techniques to work small-scale iron productively, and also fuse a
variety of golds to textured iron.

In early 2013, I began teaching the techniques in iron and fused
gold in my FERROUS MUSINGS/FUSINGS workshops across the US, and will
be teaching in Europe in 2015.

Most recently, I was invited to write a paper, and present the paper
"Iron Mused/Gold Fusede’the New Iron Age" at the 28th Santa Fe
Symposium.

I am a copywriter, editor and social media marketer at Rio Grande. I
am joining the Orchid forum to become more knowledgeable and to add
to the discussions. I’ve been at Rio Grande for a little more than
four years and still have so much to learn!
